Flashback: Hand-Printed Patterned Floor

Not a fan of carpeting, I recently took the plunge and pulled up the existing carpet in my cabin. What lay beneath is actually some pretty sweet wood flooring. It’s by no means flawless, but since I adore the rustic cabin look (and I don’t have the budget to redo my floors right now), I instantly thought of a project from the pages of CRAFT Volume 09. Grace Bonney, in her DIY Design column, introduced us to a project by Catherine Weis on how to transform a scuffed wood floor into a work of art using custom, homemade stencils and paint. Needless to say, when I saw the picture above, I was totally floored at the simple, yet styely, results. The project is short and sweet, so I’m sharing it with you in its entirety here.
